What You Need to Ask Before Hiring an AC Repair Company

At iTemp Heating and Air Conditioning, we know that choosing a company you can count on to complete AC repair in Chicago is important. We understand how important it is to find a reliable company that does good work. We can help. Figuring out the answers to these questions can help you make a confident, informed decision.

  1. How long have you been in business? A company with years of experience that has long-term employees is often a good one.
  2. Is your company insured? Any pro that works in your home should possess liability insurance to protect you in the case of accidental damage or injury.
  3. What kinds of licenses and certifications do your technicians hold? A truly professional AC repair company will require their technicians to be licensed, certified, and require ongoing education and training of their professionals to keep them up-to-date with the latest trends and developments.
  4. Do you have any references you can offer? A reliable company that provides AC repair should have a list of references they’ll readily share with you. Check these references and find out all the details about AC repairs the prospective company has performed.
  5. Will you provide a written estimate? Be sure to get a written estimate so you can review all the particulars involved with your AC repair. And remember, the cheapest estimate isn’t automatically the best estimate. Your detailed estimates should help you filter out companies you aren’t planning to work with, no matter how inexpensive they are.
  6. Do your technicians have experience working on my system? You may want to ensure the company you go with has experience working on your specific equipment, especially if it has any less-common features.
  7. Will my AC repairs be warrantied? Work that has a warranty is a no-brainer. If a company isn’t fine with standing behind their work, maybe you should move on.
